According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid’s plans for Jude Bellingham will not be changed by the contract renewals of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos

Both Modric and Kroos are on contracts that expire on June 30. However, their extensions are firmly on track, with the former understood to have a full agreement over a new deal while the latter is believed to have already signed his new contract.

Given that the veteran duo are set to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu for at least one more season, the Real Madrid midfield department could become quite crowded as they plan to rope in Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund.

The 19-year-old is already understood to have agreed personal terms with the Spanish and European champions and the two clubs will meet later this month to finalise the transfer.

And Romano has clarified that the contract extensions of Kroos and Modric will not change anything with regard to Real Madrid’s plans for Bellingham.

Los Blancos consider the England international as a crucial target for the team for the present and the future. And they will press ahead to try and agree a transfer fee with Dortmund to try and close the deal at the earliest possible.

Real Madrid already have a host of top midfielders in Modric, Kroos, Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni, and with Bellingham’s potential arrival, the quality will only be boosted.

If Dani Ceballos also renews his contract, manager Carlo Ancelotti will have his hands full and it will certainly be interesting to see how he juggles his midfield options next season.

What seems clear is that Bellingham is on the way to join Real Madrid and will have the opportunity to learn from legends like Kroos and Modric, which should help him settle in at the club and ease the transition at the club.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
